Tear it Down

Tear it Down

A Poem by Morgan Ashire
"

A lyric loosely based off of the poem "Shoutout." It's the same general concept, but with a new perspective.

"

Tear it down, these walls of opinion.

Tear it down, this fight of oblivion.

This place, it bleeds segregation.

To live is an abomination.

 

Tear it down, I live to be a martyr.

Tear it down, I wish that you'd be smarter.

Any man is no better than another.

Every man should be treated like a brother.

 

This curtain of social segregation,

Won't be ripped without retaliation.

This fight is of utter salvation.

Fight the war of desegregation.

 

Tear it down, obliterate this barrier.

Tear it down and be a message carrier.

This fight is of utter reputation.

Make a change, destroy segregation.

 

Take a step into a new world.

Take a chance, face us with no lip curled.

We are equals and nothing can change this.

Just accept that we are your catalyst.

Ashire,
My living - breathing - breathing friend...

You speak of the truth.
Not just for rhythm of rhyme,
but your words somehow flow strait from your mouth.
I am able to picture each word sputtered across their
faces...

You were wonderful - THIS was wonderful...

these words here,
"This fight is of utter reputation."
were shot everywhere for the silence around me to endure.

I can only hope that your thoughts...your voice...can reach those
who need it most in our society.

My Love,
And My Gratitude,
~*AC*~
